What is Computational Science

Computational Science is doing Science via Computation. It has now become the third mode of scientific research, complementing Theory and Experiment. Thanks to the tremendous advances in computing power, increasingly complicated and realistic processes can now be simulated computationally.

The design, prototyping, optimization, and control of technological processes depend on fundamental understanding of the phenomena involved, their interactions, and sensitivity on parameters. These can be studied very effectively via computer simulations based on mathematical models expressing physical principles.
